Gosia Lipinski profile rock climbing South AfricaGosia Lipinska has been climbing for 9 years and has climbed extensively all over South Africa and the world.

This year she is focusing on upping her trad grades and doing some harder sport routes.  In particular routes in Montagu – that work my weakness – that is extremely boulder powerful moves.

Below is a list of her more impressive sends to date:


No Longer at Ease (25) TM – second go

Four Strong Winds (25) Tafelberg

Gosia Lipinska rock climbing South AfricaAfrica Arete (25) TM – onsight


Madiba (25)

Neanderthal Rex (27)

The Optimist (27) – second go

Monkey Pump (29)

Twisted Steel and Sex Appeal (29) – which she sent last Friday

Gosia worked the route took for only 3 days (having to use the ‘alternative finger-slot’ – luckily her fingers slotted right in).
Her next project will most likely be Firestarter (29)at Waterworld  since I was in the middle of working it when the floods rearranged Badkloof.

Gosia is sponsored by Black Diamond, Saltic, Beal and First Ascent

Gosia has been featured in the first of a series of films entitled ‘Be the first – Climb
